Description

Bob Woodward's impeccable journalism contributed to The Washington Post winning the Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of Watergate. The internationally best-selling author of All The President's Men, Woodward is credited with setting the standard for modern investigative reporting. Based on interviews with 75 key participants, including President George W. Bush, Jr. himself, this stunning work is the definitive account of how and why the United States went to war with Iraq for a second time. Listeners are treated to rare, behind-the-scenes glimpses into the workings of the Bush Administration-the picture that emerges reveals conviction and determination, but also haste and questionable judgment. "With this book, Woodward has delivered his most important and impressive work in years. Ultimately, this first-class work of contemporary history will be remembered for shedding needed light on the Iraq War, whatever its final outcome."-Publishers Weekly

Professional reviews

"This is investigative journalist Bob Woodward's (ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN) account of the whys and wherefores leading up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. It benefits from interviews with numerous insiders, including President Bush. Woodward writes clearly and intelligently, and arranges his information and analyses to make both as easy to follow as possible. Like a good reporter, he leaves the reader to decide what is noble, knavery, realpolitik, foolishness, or wisdom in our country's investment of lives and money. Narrator Richard Poe never "nods." He stays in control of the writing throughout. Further, he uses his fine-tuned ear and vocal technique to imbue the quotes with a sense of their authors' personalities, as revealed on TV and radio news. Always within the bounds of good taste, Poe never draws attention to himself at the book's expense; he just gives us a sense of time and place and persons, pulls everything coherently together, and stays both interested and interesting.
